      DescriptionSTEMCCA Constitutive Polycistronic (OKSM) Lentivirus Reprogramming Kit
      OverviewThe STEMCCA Constitutive Polycistronic (OKSM) Lentivirus Kit contains high titer polycistronic (OKSM) lentivirus and Polybrene transfection reagent that have been validated for the generation of mouse and human induced pluripotent stem cells from mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) and human foreskin fibroblasts (HFFs), respectively. The STEMCCA vector is comprised of the transcription factors Oct-4, Klf4, SOX-2, and c-Myc (OKSM), separated by the self-cleaving 2A peptide and IRES sequences (Sommer CA, 2009). The use of a single polycistronic lentiviral vector significantly improves reprogramming efficiencies and reduces the number of viral integrations.

      Important note: the STEMCCA lentivirus reprogramming kits are provided in two formats, dependent on whether you are working with a human or mouse system. Human reprogramming experiments require a higher multiplicity of infection (MOI) than mouse experiments. Therefore, the larger, three-vial kits are required for human reprogramming experiments. If you are reprogramming mouse embryo fibroblast cells, you have the option to use either the one- or three-vial kit, depending on how many wells you want to infect. Reprogramming other rodent somatic cells may require more than one vial of lentivirus to perform at optimal MOI.

      Storage and Shipping Information
      Storage ConditionsLentivirus is stable for at least 6 months when stored at -80°C. After first thaw, place immediately on ice and store in working aliquots to avoid further freeze thaws. Avoid freeze thaws as this will result in a decrease in the virus titer. Polybrene transfection reagent is stable for at least 1 year when stored at -20°C.
